Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, to your query, doubtful if it can be finalized in the DCR-DVD101 since even the machine (Sony) that recorded it no longer recognizes it.

Offhand, possible workarounds. There is something you could try; finalize the DVD -R disc using a computer with a DVD burner. If you would consider, two possible methods using Nero 9. 1st - perform a DVD to DVD copy:

  • load the un-finalized disc;
  • run Nero StartSmart;
  • click on Rip & Burn tab;
  • select Copy Disc;
  • choose Copy entire disc.
  • proceed following on-screen instructions;
  • eject un-finalized disc and load blank when instructed (would take some time before instructed);
  • once blank is burned, open Disc Tools;
  • click on Finalize disc.

Alternately:
  • in Nero Application List, click on Nero Recorder;
  • choose Recode an entire DVD to DVD;
  • click on Fit to Target of 4.7Gb;
  • choose Import DVD;
  • if it can be read, then it would be ripped and saved in the computer's HD or Nero would ask for a blank disc to burn anew. Ensure the 2nd copy is finalized.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

This is a broken LCD screen and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

The supplied software is not compatible with Mac Computer and Sony does provide any software or driver for Mac Computer for this Camcorder.

However, you can transfer the video to the Mac Computer. Refer the link given below for the instruction:

Functionality in Europe


Hey taliadoros,

According to the manufacturer, this particular model appears to allow filming in NTSC format only. Unfortunately this means that in order to play any video footage recorded on this camcorder, the device being used to play the footage back would also need to be NTSC-compliant.

Please keep in mind that while some electronics sold in Europe may be both NTSC and PAL-compliant, it cannot be guaranteed that footage filmed using your camcorder will be compatible with all multi-format model devices.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
